I don't get why this movie so poorly and why there are so many negative comments.Even before this film I thought Bale was a great Actor but after doing what he did,taking the part so seriously that he only ate a can of Tuna and one Apple a day for 4 months,and y this dangering his own life,I think he's the most dedicated and professional Actor at all time.The movie is also gr8 and dark and thrilling

''The Machinist'' is a dour, dire, down and dark movie, mainly about a man pursued by guilt personified. Christian Bale was bleakly effective as a wasting away, haunted man descending into madness. I don't know what he must have gone through to lose so much weight for the movie that he almost fit the specter of a victim of the Holocaust. Yes, THAT, wasted away, emaciated, gaunt ... anorexic. There really is no up side to ''The Machinist.'' There is no sunshine. There are no bright or clean ambiances. There is only dread and grit and bleakness. A movie, no matter how well acted, that hellishly hopeless just can't get a rating from me better than a 3 of 5. Sorry, there it is.

It's brilliant! Even though it's a little slow for my taste, but a great film regardless.

It was a good movie, but not well explained. Left me confused. Christian Bale however was outstanding as usual. I'd give it 7/10

This is one of the best movies ever! Before seeing this I thought this was a kind of horror movie due to the look Christian Bale had!! But this turned out much better!! The twist and turns are really well thought out and executed! Excellent director and of course excellent actor! 9/10

Christian Bale's performance throughout the movie is mesmerizing, he lost 60 lbs. for his role. I was intrigued by this suspenseful film right from the start, and it held my attention all the way through. It's quite a clever script, creepy, very eerie...the whole cast did a great job...A good watch... 9/10

Leaves you a little dazed and confused but over all very worth it! Bale was amazing as usual, and the amount of weight he lost to play this part is insaine! Loved it

Such an amazing film. I can't believe it took me so long to watch it. Christian Bale transforms himself into this characters and holds your attention the whole way through. The story unfolds in a strange yet captivating way. 10/10

I really did not expect this. If you are looking for a killer atmosphere then this will blow your mind. He has truly proven his talent with this one.

Wow, Christian Bale sure is one of the best actor out there... he played the role really well. Like everyone's comments he deserves an award from this. The movie is a bit confusing but you'll get it eventually. For me it's a 9.5/10.

Great movie! Great acting and dedication by Bale i cant believe how much weight he lost to play this role. 9/10

All I can say is 'Wow!' (okay maybe I can say a little bit more). This was some of Bale's finest acting and takes a very realistic look at a plausible unraveling of the human mind which I found fascinating. For a kind of in the same ball park comparison I would reference 'Shutter Island' although this was far more gripping. I give it a 5/5 - for those who may not like this kind of movie I think you would still agree this was some top quality acting and cinema. Thanks!

I heard that Bale lost 27kg for this movie and also heard that he didnt get any award for this performance; i wonder... 4.5/5 !!!

I loved this movie. It was really good. I loved the directing. Everything was great....The music, the sound, the lightning. (it was dark lighting....but it really fits the movie). And it's very mysterious. You don't know what to expect. Really exiting. And I don't think anybody can question Christian Bale's comitment to the role.

Absolutely fantastic. Christian Bale is a LEGEND in acting and this movie that has you on the edge of your seat and keeps surprising you, only helps show how well his performance can be. 100/10 stars.
